Climate Change: What’s the Problem?

Date: 7th March 2020

Time: 10am-4pm

Location: Pant village hall, Pant near Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 9QG.

Simon will be running a poetry writing workshop on the theme of ‘Climate Change’ at Pant, near Oswestry, with Jeff Phelps. This challenging development is everywhere in the news at the moment but how should or can poets respond? And is concern in the political world genuine? The day will involve a short walk around the village so bring suitable clothing and your own lunch. Refreshments will be provided. To reserve a ticket (£20/ £15) contact Simon on 01691 831463 or via email.
